You probably won’t get Steve’s jokes or pop culture references, so just humor him. As Director of Creative Services, he leads our team of graphic designers, presentation designers, motion designers, video producers, and animators. His 25+ year career in design and media production has spanned traditional graphic design, digital media, video production, animation, creative direction, and project management. He also founded and operated a digital design agency for 10 years before a successful exit.

His work has won design awards such as a Gold Wallie Award from the Carolinas Healthcare Public Relations and Marketing Society and eHealthcare Leadership Awards. He was also named a Top 50 Entrepreneur by Business Leader Magazine and won a Piedmont Business Ethics Award by the Society of Financial Professionals.

Life outside of Centrifuge: 

Steve is a certified Kansas City Barbecue Society judge and loves spending time on his (wife’s) Traeger smoking anything.  He is a long-time drummer and enjoys most music made before 2001 (excluding country music). He also is an avid Halloween fanatic so when you drive by that over-the-top crazy Halloween house, that’s probably him. And if you haven’t guessed it already, Steve belongs to the Star Wars fandom, although he’s still not happy about The Last Jedi.

Steve lives in Wake Forest, NC with his patient, beautiful wife, Crystal, their daughter, 3 dogs, and 2 cats.
